Priština (alternative arrangements) - while every effort will be made to keep to the above itinerary, political tensions in this area can heighten occasionally. If the Foreign Office advises against travel to Priština specifically or Kosovo in general, we will not go. We also reserve the right to make alternative arrangements if we feel that any area we are to visit has become, or could potentially become, troublesome/violent. In this case we will arrange another activity in its place.

We have chosen well-positioned, comfortable accommodation within a 10 – 15 minute walking distance of the main areas of interest. The majority are 3* hotels, some are 4*. Be aware that a 4* in some countries may not be of the same quality/standard as your own. However, we have chosen what we consider to be the best option for location, cleanliness and facilities and not necessarily for décor or nice views i.e. a hotel by the sea will not necessarily mean you will have a sea view.

All hotels/apartments have air-conditioning/fans and Wi-Fi (in some cities this is only available in common areas). In almost all locations you will have a mini-bar (payable at check-out) or refrigerator, as well as a hairdryer and a TV with English channels. Some of the hotels do not have elevators but there will be someone on hand to help with your luggage.

All of our hotels are featured on www.tripadvisor.com – feel free to check them out!

Prices: on a twin share basis. If you are a single traveller and would be prepared to share a room with another guest of the same sex, the price will remain the same. If you would like your own space, we have single rooms available at an extra fee.

Hotel Restaurant/Meals: Please note that although some of the hotels include breakfast it is sometimes not possible to have lunch or dinner there. As you are travelling through new countries we realise you probably want to experience local cuisine, which is why your Tour Leader will organise or recommend a local restaurant/eatery for the group in each location. Included meals do not come with drinks and these are at your own expense.
